Here's some good news.

"On 3 June 2016 the highest administrative court of the Dutch Caribbean confirmed the annulment of the zoning plan which planned for a large-scale restaurant and entertainment pier in the middle of the heavily protected marine park of Bonaire. Echoing the verdict of the Court of First Instance of last year the Joint Court of Justice confirmed that the Island Council didn't motivate the significant breach of the Islands protection policy by suddenly allowing commercial building activities in the marine park."

Specifically, how does this apply?

The piers at Karels?
Anything else?
